Veiled ode to George Bush deleted from Pakistani textbooks

Found this here

This was just too funny to pass up. It lookes like some guy in the Pakastani Education Ministry has a twisted sense of humor. Apparently, this poem was printed in a text-book for 16 year olds.

The leader

Patient and steady with all he must bear,

Ready to accept every challenge with care,

Easy in manner, yet solid as steel,

Strong in his faith, refreshingly real,

Isn't afraid to propose what is bold,

Doesn't conform to the usual mold,

Eyes that have foresight, for hindsight wont do

Never back down when he sees what is true

Tells it all straight, and means it all too

Bracing for war, but praying for peace

Using his power so evil will cease:

So much a leader and worthy of trust,

Here stands a man who will do what he must

I have to say, I find it pretty touching. I wish I could meet the author.
